I had my doubts about the Arturia, with it’s strange design language and new hybrid powertrain set up. But I was pleasantly surprised when McLaren Newport Beach invited me out for their test drive event. I have to say this baby McLaren is quite impressive. It is comfortable, docile yet when it needs to be it is and can be a complete animal. The best part is they have managed to defy physics by keeping the car almost completely flat in the turns with their new suspension set up. My only real gripe and concern is the smart key. As it can leave you the car dead or having you leave your car unlocked by accident.
